PREFACE. 



Geoffeey O'Donoghtje, whose collected Poems are 
here presented to the reader, lived during a period 
of transition in the metrical system of Irish verse. 
He affords us excellent specimens of both the 
sjllabic and stressed systems of Irish metre. Though 
this volume is small, it will furnish a suitable text- 
book for advanced students who have read through 
such authors as Eoghan Ruadh and MacDonnell, and 
are just beginning to make a little headway in the 
íields of *oÁr\ T)ífieAó literature. There is a vast 
amount of Irisk verse written in syllabic u etre still 
unexplored and unedited in our manuscripts. Most 
of it presents great difficulties to the student of the 
modern language, and these difficulties are enhanced 
by the mistakes made by the scribes in copying. 
Many of the scribes were ignorant of the laws that 
govern this kind of poetry, and many of the words 
employed, being new to them, were twisted to forms 
in current use, but which outraged sense and inetre. 
A priori, it would seem that compositionswritten not 
above 250 years ago should rank as modern Irish, 
yet few students of the modern languag^ could read 
with ease the syllabic poems of the latter part of the 
seventeenth century . A poem ascribed to O'Donoghue, 
consisting of 40 quatrains, was discovered too late 
for uso in this edition.

M E T R I C 



Geoffrey O'Donoghue was, beyond question, a consummate master 
of the metrical art. He has given us poems both in -oÁn x>í jievAc and 
in the stressed metres. 

We begin with the x>Án -oífieAc. It is a general name for a set 
of metrical arrangements requiring among otlier things a fixed 
number of syllables in each line. The principal of these and the 
one chiefly used by O'Donoghue is the -oeibróe. 

*Oeibi-óe requires (a) the fiAnn or stanza to be four-lined. The 
fiAnn is divided into parts of tvvo lines each, the first leAt-fiAnn or 
distich is called the r-eolA-ó, the second leAÚ-jiAnn or distich the 
cottiax). Each jtAnn must have complete sense, and not nnfre- 
quently each teAÚ-fiAnn has the sense completed also. In the Irish 
MSS. generally the f eotA-ó and the corhAX) are each written in a 
single line with a point to mark their sub-division. 

(6) Seven sjdlables in every line or ceAt|\ArhA. In computing 
the number of syllables elision is taken into account, Elision of a 
vowel ending a word may take place when necessary if followed by 
a word beginning with a vowel. If the vowel that follows be long 
and the preceding vowel short elision of the short vowel is not 
general. 

^c) UAim or alliteration. In each line two words of which neither 
is the article, possessive pronoun, or preposition, must begin with a 
vowel or with the same consonant. In compounds nAim is made by 
the initial letter, but particles like *oo and po entering into com- 
pounds as prefixes are not computed in iiAim. Eclipsing letters do 
not make uAim nor do the letters f , f , t. 

(d) comA]i-OAX). The last syllable of each of the odd lines must 
agree with the last syllable of the succeeding even line in vowels 
and consonants of the same species. Two consonants to be of the 
same species must both belong to one of the following groups into 
which the consonants are divided. 



w 111 METRIC, 

[\ \\ which ia called bhe queon of consouants. 

2 c, p, c, hard. 

3 5, b, t>, roedial. 

i c, r, p (p), aspirates. 

5) 1 1 . nu. nn. m, n.v strong. 
(» 6, V), j, th, t, n, p, light. 

The vowels are divided into — 

a, o, u. broad, and e, i, slender. 

ComA|coAX) ptÁn or pcrfect correspondence takes place whcn the 
vowels are tlie same and the consonants of the same species, com- 
AptKvó bmrce or imperfect correspondence when the vowels are the 
same but the consonants not of the same class. 

[e) mnn and Áijro-fiinu. TLe last word of hoth the second and 
fourth lines (Ái|ro-uinn) must be each longer by a svllable than the 
last word of the first and third lines (|unn) respectively. For ftinn 
and Áifvo-fiinn compound words may be employed. Sometimes the 
m onl that ends one line has a prefix put before it in the next. This 
metrical requisite greatly stimulated the creation of compound 
words. 

(f) \iAitnc. Vowel correspondence must take place between a 
"\vord at the end or middle of the íirst and third lines, and a word 
in the middle of the second and fourth lines respectively. For 
tuMÚne it is suíhcient that the vowels beboth broad or both slender 

g) Amuf is a correspondence between a word in tbe first and 
third lines (at the end or middle, but generally at the end), and a 
word at the middle of the second and fourth lines respectively 
Amiif requires correspondence between the vowels, and aho that 
the consonants belong to the same species. 

In t.he illustration of thelaws of -oeibi-óe we will examine the first 
stanza of (TDonoghue's elegy on O'Sullivan. 

CjiéA-o í An AubfAinn-fe &}\ éi-ftmn,

!mf cjiAnu-jiUA'ó ua yé&*o re-An, 

C|téAT> aii u-AThtitA-ó rÁ'u hAljt^eAX). 
By computing two elisions in first line, in both eases í and a meet, 
and one in line two where fcwo a's meet, we have the requisite num- 
ber of syllables in each linc, wc also have clearly junn andÁifvo-fiiun 
in the words éijunn and "OAoifi-jéibmn, and also in the words reAn 
and hAiftseA-ó. W< i have uAim in first liné between AnbpAinn and 



METRIC. XIX 

éittinn as bóth begin with a vowel, and in second between XK\mnA 
and -o.Aoifi-3éibinn, both beginning with x). Also j: íort-uAim in third 
line between féAX) and reAn, and u<Mm in fonrth line between u-atti- 
Uiax) and hAinseAX) as u and h do not coimt. We have also com- 
AtroAX) between éirunn and "OAoin-jeibinn and between ye&n and 
hAifigeA-ó, as n and -ó belong to the same species of consonants. 
There seems to be no very decided uAitne in the two first lines 
unless it be between étumn and cnéAX), but we have Amur between 
crtAnn-riuAX) and AmtuAX), and throughout this ent-ire poem and 
O'Donoghue's other x)eibix>e pieces there is a very distinct Arrmr in 
the comAX). 

O'Donoghue uses also stressed metres which require afixednumber 
of stresses to fall on syllables having corresponding v.owel sounds. 

The most important poem of 0' Donogliue's is a cAomeAX), a species 
of stressed metre. The cAomeAX) or mA-|ibn<\ generally has four 
lines to the stanza, and each line is ruled by four stresses. Of the 
four vowels on which these stresses fall the second and third agree 
in sound while the first need not agree with any stressed vowel in 
the line or in any line in the stanza, Vowels agree in sound when 
they are identical, or, if diphthongs or triphthongs, the prevailing 
souncls of the combinations agree. A single vowel may thus agree 
with a diphthong or triphthong. For instance, cté, bv\ot, ftéAtr, 
rcéit are svllables having vowels that agree in sound. The final 
stressed vowel sound is the same for the entire caoi neAX). O'Donoghue 
as well as Pierce Ferriter generally stresses the first syllable of each 
line, which isa strong one like x^'óa^, hetice in the cAome*vó of these 
poets tlie lines contain often the minimum number of syllables, which 
is éight. The first stanza of tlie CAomeAX) on Maurice Fitzgerald is : 

"O'éAg au péite 1 n-ém-'peAcc rhuirnf, 
T)'éA5 An uAifte gtuA-jt jAn stio^Ajt, 
T)'éA5 An AnÁtjt ceAnn-Ánx) cuttAX), 
"S x^'éAg au -poi^Xíe x>oimm ^au x)tnbe. 

If we mark by a horizontal stroke the unstressed vowels and 
reduce the stressed vowels when diphthongs or triphthongs to 
the prevailing sound of the combination, where possible, we may 
write this stanza metrically thus : 

é — é — é — 1 — 



e — 01 — 01 



x\ METRIC. 

Tlie final stressed sound is ui or i throughout. It should be ob- 
served that short vowels or diphthongs not identical are easilv 
allowed to agree metricallv — thus in this stanza the final stressed 
vowels are ui, 10, u, ui, which all agree metrically, and often in the 
course of the poem agree with 1, as in mitif cjuúif, etc. 

The conri-éeAnjAl of this elegy is written in a species of elegiac 
metre. There are only three stresses, but falling 011 long vowels they 
rnlc more svllables — that is, more syllables are pronounced with 
dependence 011 them — than the four stresses in the body of the 
cAomeAX). The three stressed vowel sounds besides are the same 
all through the poem. The first stanza is — 

t)eix> éi^fe um <\n éAg-fo 50 cALLóix>eAc, 
*OÁ féAcAin cia if Léife aca x>'mneófAX>, 
Cia An ué niA|i fo CAOitxxnuA cmneoiLfi, 
Cjié LéigueA*; ua X)éA|iA 50 x>o-bf ónAé. 

Using the same notation as above we may write this : 



Here we have taken account of the elisions. The same stressed 
vowel system holds throughont as far as the last stanza which is a 
sort of a ceAn^At. 

The elegy on Sorcha Mac Donnell has four stresses to the line, the 
final svllable being stressed, and the first and second stresses ruling 
extra syllables. The first stanza is — 

Sm ofcf ax> fÁ nx>oif uim-fe mo -óéAt» a x>eAfc, 

A SOJICA mAf X>0 X)OfCU1§ A11 U-éA5 X>0 X)f e^c, 

OtcAf cuji x>o fotAf -cuifp 1 jcf é 'f An bfeAf u, 
'Sau bfoúf ac 1 nx>oif ceAcu fÁ éAUAib fCAf u. 

which written in metrical notation is— 

— o — — — o é — A 

— O — O — — A 



The metrical princíple of all the stanzas in the poem is the same. 
This metre imparts great buoyancy to the line, andis diflicult, as so 
many short svilables have to be introduced af ter the two first stresses 



METJRIC. XXI 

in each line, hence it is seldom met with in Irish poetry. Tlie reply 
to the poem is in the same metre. 

The lament for *Ofunmín is in a peculiar metre. The lirst 
stanza is — 

1r bftón-AC mo tocz, 

50 cóiftpeAc t)om fUvo, 
1r C|iótA5 mo cojtp, 
ir •oeojtAc mo ■óeAfic. 

We have thus íive syllables in every line, and each line ending in 
a monosyllable, cotuA'jre.tVÓ between the final words of the odd and 
even lines respectively, also Amur between a word in the middle of 
first line and a word in the middle of the second. and b< tween a 
word in the middle of the third and one in the middle of the fourth. 



THE MANUSCRIPTS. 

(Roman numerals refer to the number of the poems.) 

The manuscripts from which the foliowing poems are taken are all 
to be found in the Library of the Boval Irish Academy. Poem I. is 
given in full in three MSS. (23 B. 37 ; 23 L. 37 ; 23 G. 25), and par- 
tially in two others (23 N. 21 ; 23 0. 39). Two MSS. (23 39 ; 23 
G. 25), ascribe it to O'Bruadar. 23 B. 37, written by Malachv Curry, 
ascribes it to O'Donoghue, and so does Eugene 0*Curry himself in 
several passages of his Catalogue. 23 L. 37, which was written in 
1708, gives a short prose preface, but does not give the author's name, 
althougb it inserts a poem hj O'Bruadar immediatelv following, to 
which his name is prefixed. The following iist gives the MS. sources of 
each poem : — 

L 23 B. 37, p. 45 ; 23 G. 25, p. 269 ; 23 0. 39, p. 175 ; 23 L. 37,

NOTES. 



Geofrey O'Donoghue, of Glenflesk, whose poems 
are now, for the first time, given to the public, was 
head of the G enflesk branch o£ the O'Donoghues. 
He lived during the latter half of the seventeenth 
century, and seems to have maintained his lands 
and castle of Rilaha, in spite of the confiscations and 
transplantations of that period. The exact date of 
his death is uncertain. 0'Curry says he was living 
in 1689, and it would appear from Miss Hickson's 
" Old Kerry Records" that his wife was a widow at 
the close of the century. The poems here collected, 
though few in number, are unsurpassed for purity of 
language and vigour of expression. One poem in 
particular, the Elegv on Maurice Fitzgerald, of Lish- 
een Castle, Uounty Cork, composed in 1679, deserves 
to rank as a classic. A diíficult system o£ versifica- 
tion is wielded with apparent ease, while the diction 
is pure and elevated. He understood perfectly the 
laws of the x>Án r>\\\eAó, as his elegy on O'Sullivan 
sliows. His short memorial song on Lady Muskerry 
<lisplays his unequalled mastery of the more complex 
s ystems of versification. 0'Curry, who is rather 
sparing of his eulogies, speaks of him as one of the 
most learned writers of his day, and adds that his 
witty sayings were still (1840) current in Munster. 
We have a suspicion that there were two Geofreys. 
We think it improbable that the Geofrey who lives 
in tradition is the same as the author of most of the 



32 NOTES. 

poems in this collection. There was a Geofrey 
O'Donoghue, Séapfuvó C<\ot,wholivedattheendof the 
eighteenth centurv, and was something of a poet, and 
it is probable that , Curry confounds the two. The 
poem on " Druimin" occurs in a MS. of 1785. There 
is one poem by O'Donoghue, which is not includedin 
this volume. The subject is Julia Roche, whose 
guardian he seems to have been. Thepoet catalogues 
the kind of persons he would not desire to see united 
to her in marriage with much humour, but with an 
occasional indelicacy of language. 

Poem I. — This splendid poem is an elegy on Maurice Fitzgerald, 
of Castle-Lishin, who died on the seventeenth day of April, 1679, and 
was buried at Buttevant (Citt nA muttAc). Castle-Lishin (CAif teAu 
An Lifín) belonged to the Earl of Desmond, and in 1600 the then 
Earl of Dasmond was imprisoned therein by Dermot O'Connor, but 
soon rescued by his retainers. The ruins of the castle are still visible 
in the townland of Castle-Ishin, parish of Knocktemple, in the 
county of Cork, not far from the borders of Limerick. See " Four 
Masters," p. 2173. The MS. 23 L. 37, which was written in 1708, 
gives the following preface to the poem : —

The same MS. (as also 23 G. 25) gives the following stanzas at end 
of poem as given in text with the space of a few lines between. The 
scribe (Juhn Stack) evidently considered them by the same hand ; 
23 G. 25 does not leave a space. They are not given in B. 37, and 
from internal evidence seem spurious,

In the above stanzas tiom-pA is a variant for cum^Aix), and tAéu

II. — This splendid elegy is in excellent x>eibix>e metre, and displays 
the poet's great fertility of language. He laments here the head of 
the branch of the O'Sullivan sept settled in the County of Tipperarv. 

III. — The Sarah MacDonnell here lamented is probably the wife of 
Donchadh an Chuil, Earl of Muskery, whose son, Justin MacCarthy, 
Lord Mountcashel (SAopbpeiteAc), died in 1694 abroad. The poem 
is remarkable f or a sonorous rythm of great beauty. The reply, too, in 
the same metre, is not without interest. A stanza or more would 
seem to have dropped out of the reply. The author of the reply, 
T)iA}tmAix> Ó5 Ua SúitteAbÁm, was a native of Kerry and a poet of 
distinction. 

IV. — This poem gives its own date in the concluding stanza (1669),

34 NOTES, 

O'Reeffe, who is here laménted, was chieftain of thc district rouiid 
Dromtarriffe. 0'Rahilly, in his eAcuju\ úait')s; T)uib ní éjtóinín, 
makes merry at 0'Keeffo's pretentions to chieftainship, having onlya 
miserable pateh of mountain land to rulc over. A fine elegy on 
*Oomtu\ll Ua CAOtrii, here lamented, was composed by TíoriinAtt 
gAfit) tK\ SvulteAbÁm. From a MS. copy of it preservcd in May- 
aooth, it appears that he died on the 22nd of November, 1669, and 
indeed from O'Donoghue's few stanzas it appears that November was 
the month of his death. From *OoriinAtt gAftb's elegv it would 
appear that 0'Keeffe was bred to arms in France and Flanders ; that 
Condé and Turenne and the Duke of York (afterwards James II.) 
held him in high honour. It is also mentioned in this elegy that once 
in Flanders, when a Scotchman named Armstrong spoke insultingly 
of Ireland, 0'Keeffe proved to him that his name was of no avail 
against his superior strength of arms. Hcre is the stanza :—

V. — Brian MacSweeney, the subject of this poem, seems to have 
been injured in the face while playing backgammon. O'Donoghue- 
appears to have been of the party. There seems to have been an 
altercation, in the course of which Brian got injured. The Mac- 
Sweenejs were a respectable Kerry familv, who subsequentlv becarne 
"middlemen" in the Renmare estate. The last of them died only a 
few years ago, also named Brian. 

VI. — This curious little poem was composed for a favourite dog 
of tiie poet's which was choked by a mouse while a corn-sta:k was 
being re-made. The piece has been exceedingly popular, as is 
évidenced by its occurring in so many MSS. 

VII. — This little poem in praise of Glenflesk is so pretty that it is 
a pitv we have not more like it. A poet like O'Donoglme, who 
evidently revelled in natural scenery, might have written an immortal 
song on the beauties of the Lakelands. This poem reminds one 
forcib!y of " King and Hermit," recently edited by Dr. Kuno Meyer. 
The same genial, unaffected love of natural beauty is manifest in 
both, and proves that their authors, so far apart in tíme, were 
fcindred spirits. 

VIII. — This most melodious poem was composed in 1670, ten years 
af ter the Restoration The poet shows a just appreciation of England's 
policy in Ireland at this period. 



NOTES. 35 

IX.— This piece was composed after the Cromwellian spoliations 
were confirmed nnder Charles II. 

X. — These rules for the choice of a wife, as well as the poem on 
Julia Roche, omitted from this collection, afford evidence of the 
poet's powers of humour. 

XI. — Unfortunately we here have only a fragment, by an unknown 
author, of an elegy on the poet. Probably the author was one of the 
O'Sullivans, Geoffrey's contemporaries, either 'OomnAll ^Aftb or 
*OiA]imAi-o 05 ua SúitteAbÁin. 

A poem in -oÁn -oífteAc to be found in pages 142 et seq. of the 
íl. I. A. MS., 23 N. 13, is there ascribed to O'Donoghue. The heading 
attributing it to O'Donoghue seems in a diíFerent hand from the text 
of the piece. Through an oversight on the part of the Editor, this 
poem was confounded with Poem II of this collection — both being 011 
O'Sullivan, and the catalogue entry of bothjbeing in much the same 
terms. The error was detected too late for the poem to appear in its 
place in this collection. It is 40 quatrains in length and begins : —
